Nigerians are outraged by videos of veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu being harassed by some military officers over the purported Biafran regalia he wore.
It was earlier reported that Chiwetalu Agu was brutalized and arrested by soldiers on Thursday, October 7 in Onitsha, Anambra State.
According to a statement released by the Spokesperson of the Nigerian army, Oyama Nwachukwu, Chiwetalu Ago was arrested by the troops because he was rallying support for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) while dressed in their colors.
Reacting to this, Nigerians slammed and condemned the soldiers for humiliating a public figure such as Chiwetalu Agu has clearly not committed any crime and asked if this is the one Nigeria they have been longing for.
